SIMULATED EMERGENCY TEST (SET) – OCTOBER 21, 2017

The 2017 Simulated Emergency Test will be held on Saturday, October 21, starting 9am local time on the Central Alberta Amateur Radio Club repeater network, VE6QE etc.

This will be a virtual exercise for a severe weather event in Red Deer and Lacombe Counties. As a virtual exercise there is no need for anyone to travel to take part.

The exercise will use a Net Control Station (NCS) plus ten other stations including one located at the Emergency Operations Centre (EOC).

Each operator participating in the exercise will receive a skeleton script detailing station location and capabilities along with a minimum of specific messages to be introduced at certain times.

The following link includes the instructions and minimum specific messages noted above: Weather Exercise Complete

Hope you are able to take part.

ARES Net Control Volunteers

Firstly, I acknowledge the contribution made by Greg VA6GMC as ARES Net Control; thank you Greg.

ARES Red Deer is seeking volunteers to take on Net Control duties for the Sunday evening ARES Net. If you’re new to ARES, this is a good opportunity to learn or improve your net control and traffic handling skills.

There is a script to follow, and, in general, the Net doesn’t take more than 15 to 20 minutes. If you are able to commit to operating Net Control once every five weeks, I’d like to here from you.

Once there is at least five volunteers, a schedule will be drawn up with volunteers operating in rotation.

If you’re interested and would like to know more drop me a line at stephen dot lee@shaw dot ca, or give me a call at four zero three-three zero seven-1643.

If you’re already an ARES member that’s awesome, it not, why not sign up; just ask for details.
